Bugs the Doberman, a set on Flickr.
Miss Bugs is a year old today!
The past six months have been difficult and rewarding - when Bugs came to me, she was just entering into the "doberteens" and I swear to you, she seemed to actually try to be a pain in the butt! She'd look me in the eye and stick her head in the trash can. I'd ask for a sit and she'd gallop off into the wild blue yonder (aka the bedroom.) I would tell her to lay down next to me and she'd jump on my head.
But for all of that, she's also the most loving dog I've ever known. She'll break her neck to be near me all the time. She loves bear hugs and will stick her bonker (aka nose) through my arms to get one. She's is starting to show signs of the awesome dog that I know she can be, and she's calming down so much.
I can't even put into words how much I love this dog. She's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
